The Core Matters

Since our founding in 1930, Temple Beth Israel has been forming and transforming Jewish life in Melbourne, enriching the lives of our congregants through prayer, study and celebration. We are a community of meaning, dedicated to providing our members and friends with relevant and accessible pathways for Jewish engagement.
We believe in a living Judaism that respects our history while simultaneously engaging with the opportunities and challenges of the modern world.  TBI offers a wide range of programs, classes, services, lifecycle events, festivals, choirs, and clubs, and we welcome participation from members and friends, no matter of age or ability. We invite you to explore our website, and please join us for any of our services and activities.

After months of training and collaboration, TBI is proud to share with its members its Safeguarding our Children Policy and Code of Conduct.

At the core of this policy is the protection of our children, our greatest blessing.  Please take time to read this document by clicking on this link.   If you need help or support in any of these matters, please do not hesitate to contact Rabbi Kim Ettlinger immediately and/or the police.  We are here to support our families.
